Most people encounter the “study of the stars” while reading “horoscope” forecasts for the zodiac signs. But there’s so much more to this field – astrology examines literally “everything under the Sun,” with a fascinating array of specialties. And there’s more to you than that one sign you call yours. Come hear an astrologer of 40+ years survey the connections between the sky and our lives on earth, and learn something about yourself in the process.
